We started my much needed relocation of my quilting area this week. Since the room now houses only my quilting stuff, I can now call it a quilting studio!
Hubby brought home a second hand, freebie dining room table and began fitting it to my sewing machine. This was the most important part of the new studio since my current space had a custom (by the handy hubby) built in countertop installed and it wasn't going to be moved. I think a smooth surface level with the bed of the machine is such an important part of good free motion quilting.
Then he had to reinforce the wobbly legs. I don't want a table that starts hopping with my machine!
Then I applied 3 coats of a high gloss enamel paint in "Arcadia White". Poor hubby was sent to the store to buy "white paint that wasn't pure white, but not a creamy white". I took a risk asking him to pick out the color, but he choose well.
The weather in Virginia today is quite cloudy, so I'll do another post of the whole room when the sun returns.
Meanwhile it's pumpkin patch time! Look at my fine boys.
And my super helpful and crafty daughter. She was a jewel yesterday, helping her little brother on the awesome hay castle.
I had my first customer to my quilting studio today, and while she was very nice, I was glad to have a studio in which she didn't have to go through the rest of the house and into my bedroom! She dropped off a wool applique top for me to quilt.
I can't wait to get back to quilting, but first I have to reorganize nearly everything. Not to mention setting up the loveseat and TV in the back room of our house for the kids since I took over the living room.
